We saw bright make up all over the SS13 Catwalks and its a trend that is being fully embraced in Europe and the US right now. All the overseas magazines are filled with beauty looks taking on this trend. Being from London I always buy the British magazines like Instyle and Company as they are always setting the trends with make up, hair and nails.
If you are more on the conservative side when it comes to make up and going bright on your eyes is way too much then try a bright lip or a nail. A fresh face with a pop of colour is a great way to brighten up your look and give you an edge.
Here are some products from my kit:
Mac is one of my favourite brands when it come to choice for all colours. Sadly you can’t get any of the pro products in South Africa so I got my hands on the Chromoline bright colours when I was in London these are amaming for creating a bright feline flick along the lashline. I love their lipsticks and their bright colours like Morange is my all time favourite for a bright lip.
Inglot also has great colour choices and a massive nail selection and what ever colour you fancy they normally have it. I recently shot for Elle Magazine SA and had to do 8 nail changes I ran straight to Inglot to get the bright colours. If you read my previous post on the Nails Inc collection there are 3 great neon colours for all skintones included. Essie is another great brand for colour choice and bright pops of colour check out their Neon Collection.
Opt for a colour liner or gel along your lash line or a pop of colour on your lash line and keep the rest of your make up really simple. Take an angle brush if you using a gel liner and sweep along the lash line. Alternatively if you feeling daring take a sweep of a bright eyeshadow and blend up the crease and apply the same colour liner in the waterline. Remember if you using an eyeshadow than either apply an eyelid primer like Smashox or apply your foundation and set with powder to make sure your eyeshadow stays on.
If you going for a bright lip make sure your lips are hydrated first with lip balm before applying. Go for bright pinks, orange’s or bright red. Or be daring and apply 2 bright colours apply the lighter on the outside and the darker on the inner part of the lip.
